Supporting the Knowledge-to-Action Process: A Systems-Thinking Approach
Cherney, Adrian; Head, Brian
Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, v7 n4 p471-488 Nov 2011
The processes for moving research-based knowledge to the domains of action in social policy and professional practice are complex. Several disciplinary research traditions have illuminated several key aspects of these processes. A more holistic approach, drawing on systems thinking, has also been outlined and advocated by recent contributors to this debate. This paper seeks to draw on these foundations to sketch a more integrated approach to nine organisational variables that influence the successful implementation of a "knowledge-to-action" framework for evidence-based policy and practice.
